Mar 08, Adam rated it liked it. Old Thackston gets a bad rap in Persian language classrooms, but I spent about a year and a half learning Persian before I went to class with just this and the Lonely Planet Persian phrasebook, and Tjackston found a lot to like about both of them. It’s true, however, that this one won’t get you very far in terms of shooting the breeze with native speakers.

But then, even a classroom doesn’t really prepare you for that. In any case, if you’re a beginner and don’t have access to a classroom or a couple of Old Thackston gets a bad rap in Persian language classrooms, but I spent about a year and a half learning Persian before I went to class with just this and the Lonely Planet Persian phrasebook, and I found a lot to like about both of them.
In any case, if you’re a beginner and don’t have access to a thackson or a couple of really patient native speakers, download the Pimsleur Persian just as an intro to how the language sounds and then get Lonely Planet for grammar and stuff.
If I did it, you thacjston. Overall a very good book for a language that does not have a wide range of available textbooks. Thackston is very technical and heavy on the grammatical descriptions and this is not for everyone. I would say this is a great grammar to have if you are serious about learning Persian, but you will need other courses in addition to this one in order to learn to speak the language.
